Platy fry - how to care for them?

I I recently found a platy fry in my filters when I was cleaning them out.
Has any body got advice on how to care for this fish

I have it in a breeding tank and I'm currently just feeding it crushed flake food but doesn't seem to be eatin much.

They will. I grind mine up real small and they will pick at it but you need to dip it in the water when it's between your fingers. You can also buy liquid food

Nice to see some good fishkeepers instead of some people killing living things...!

Hope it grows to its full size and good luck

Hey. He looks good at the moment. I'm now feeding him/her tabimins all mashed up into dust and he seems to be eating that so that's a good sign I guess.
